I love Beverly Lewis’ books. I’ve read quite a few of them. She has a great way of writing about the Amish, making you feel as if your right there with them. And a movie based on one of her books? Even better!

You can read an interview with Beverly Lewis about The Shunning.
I watched The Shunning with my daughter who also loves books and movies about the Amish. We both enjoyed watching this movie.
The Shunning did not disappoint. Until the end.
When the credits started to roll, I said, “What?!” I looked at my daughter and she looked at me. I said “That can’t be the end!” And she said, “That’s not right!”
We didn’t want the movie to end! We were so drawn into the movie that it didn’t feel like it had been on that long. It needed to be longer. lol
Even though the move was already shown on the Hallmark Channel, I don’t want to give away the ending in case you haven’t seen it.
You really need to watch this movie! So, how would you like to win one?
Thanks to Propeller, I get to giveaway one The Shunning DVD!
